Which dish and food is prohibited in the microwave?-Part 2

In the previous part of this article, we talked about different dishes that you should not put in the microwave. Today we want to end this discussion. Of course, first let’s review what we said last week:

Boiled egg

If you put an egg in the microwave, it will crack. The heat of the microwave will cause the egg to burst, and as a result, you will have to clean the microwave.


It is better not to heat water in the microwave. If you intend to heat water in the microwave, do not leave it in the microwave for a long time. Because by heating the water in the microwave for a long time, the temperature of the water decreases quickly after heating.

The water inside the microwave has a lot of heat and as soon as the water container is moved, the heat is suddenly released and the boiling water explodes. In order to avoid such an accident, it is better to heat the water in the microwave for short periods of time. You can heat water more often with shorter durations.

Other containers and foods prohibited for microwave

Other dishes that you cannot put in the microwave include:

  • All kinds of containers with metal handles;

Fruits forbidden in the microwave

Some fresh fruits should not be microwaved. Because these fruits damage the microwave. These fruits include carrots, grapes, broccoli, hot peppers, mushrooms and pre-made potatoes and apples. These are the most important fruits and vegetables that you should not put in the microwave.

Final word

Microwave is one of the most useful kitchen appliances that has made our work easier in many matters. You can easily put the food in the microwave and wait two to three minutes for it to heat up. But the microwave also has its own rules and you should not put any dish or food in it. In this article, we introduced the types of dishes and food that you can put inside the microwave.

If you put some food such as eggs or some containers such as metal containers inside the microwave, the device will be damaged and may even cause a fire. Some containers poison the food so that the contents become inedible.

In fact, if you put these containers with food in the microwave, your food will become unhealthy. Wooden dishes, clay dishes, paper dishes, aluminum dishes, and copper dishes which you can buy from an art shop in Canada, are not suitable for placing in the microwave. Some people put frozen meat in the microwave to defrost it, but this is not the right thing to do.

Also, it is better not to put water inside the microwave because all the water is not heated uniformly. It is forbidden to put fresh fruits such as apples and grapes in the microwave. Also, vegetables such as broccoli, mushrooms and leftover potatoes should not be put in the microwave. In this article, we have mentioned other prohibited food items and also unsuitable dishes for placing in the microwave.
